Indiana Jones 5

The fifth film in the planned Indiana Jones franchise has gained a new writer. Jonathan Kasda, who penned the recent Solo: A Star Wars Story, will take over writing duties from David Koepp on Indiana Jones 5. His father, Lawrence Kasdan, was responsible for the screenplay for the original Indy adventure Raiders of the Lost Ark, which was released back in the 1980s.

Collider reports the news, though it is yet to be confirmed officially by the studio.

Steven Spielberg is returning to direct the next Indy movie having helmed all of the previous movies in the series. Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are producing.

Shooting on the movie was set to start in the U.K. in April 2019, with the film set for a July 10, 2020 release. However, Variety are reporting that the film will miss that release date.

Again, this has not been announced by the studio, but the the trade says that the film may have to be pushed back by months, if not a year. Potential crew members have reportedly already been informed of the delay.

We’ll bring you more as it comes in.
